    VERSION 4 - JANUARY 11 2020
    ---------------------------

    Another very minor release:

    - An extra carriage-return is no longer added to the VIA kludge.

    - When the internal editor is set as Default Archive/Sent this is no
    longer reset to Kill/Sent on upgrades.

    - A fix for filtering by subject line.

    - A slightly increased log buffer size.

    - A new log file is now created, to assist with busy Hub systems and
    for overall "housekeeping". This new file, DBBINKD.SYS, contains the
    Fidonet address and date/time of the last connection. This log is "self
    updating", meaning, it will not contain duplicate addresses. You can use
    this log as you wish; for example with scripts or processes that help
    audit your D'Bridge system.

    One suggestion might be to create a batch file which just displays/
    refreshes the contents of this new log file. Note that the log is not
    sorted and contains no header, so I will add one and use the SORT command
    to show things from the oldest connection to recent. I will show things
    and pause for a minute, and loop... over and over again.

    echo off
    cd \db
    :ShowBinkLog
    cls
    echo Date Time System
    echo -----------------------------------------------------------------
    sort dbbinkd.sys
    timeout 60
    goto ShowBinkLog

    - Very minor updates to the F1-Help system and user manual.

    VERSION 4 - APRIL 3 2020
    ------------------------

    Another very minor update:

    - The vast majority of Sysops doing Usenet/Internet Email gating in D'Bridge
    usually get it working with Vsoup, Soupgate or GIGO. You can be find an
    example of this by referring to the included SOUPGATE.ZIP. D'Bridge will
    still act on Areafix requests bound for Usenet and Internet email.

    - Bug fix for the default cost-accounting potentially crashing the mailer
    on new installations that are configured to use a dialup modem only.

    - Bug fix for the DBLINE semaphore.

    - Bad AREA kludge checking is no longer an option, its always enabled.

    - Some code cleanup behind the scenes.
